“the seasonally adjusted labour force estimates from the Australian Bureau of Statistics for October sound incredible and they should be treated as just that: not credible. Don’t believe politicians as they gloat and claim credit. Don’t believe the wire services when they report the estimates as fact…. The former chief statistician recently said the data was not worth the paper it was written on.”
From the article:
“Australia and the U.S. should not light a fire and add fuel to the flames.”
Earlier this week, the USS Lassen managed to sail by China’s man-made islands in the Spratlys without getting shot at or surrounded.
The fact that China did not move to challenge the US-flagged guided-missile destroyer was a relief for those who aren’t keen on living through World War III and as hyperbolic as that might sound, it was just this month that Beijing threatened to “stand up and use force” in the event Washington went through with the “freedom of navigation” exercise.

“China, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Sweden – it is beyond us how anyone can declare the crisis isn’t spreading. Be prepared – there are going to be lots of opportunities to both make and lose money. But first, you have to recognize what is happening.”
– The Crisis Is Spreading: China, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Sweden… (ZeroHedge, Aug 15, 2015):
Earlier today, we posted an excerpt from IceCap Asset Management’s latest letter to investors focusing on the farce that is the Greek bailout #3, which can be summarized simply by the following table…
… and Keith Dicker’s assessment which was that “for Greece, it’s mathematically impossible to repay its debt” and that the Greek “economy continues to plummet to deeper depths and is now -33% less than where it was in 2008.”
But the truth is that for all the endless drama, Dicker continues, “the Greek debt crisis isn’t THE crisis. Rather it is simply a symptom of a much larger global debt crisis.” Continue reading »

If you consider that ISIS is an operation run by the CIA and the Mossad, …
… then of course ISIS could get their hands on enough material to build a dirty bomb in no time.
– ‘Dirty bomb’: ISIS has enough material to build WMD, Australian intelligence warns (RT, June10, 2015):
Islamic State is believed to have seized enough radioactive material to build a large “dirty” bomb, according to Australian intelligence reports. NATO has expressed concerned about the supplies, according to Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.
According to Australian intelligence reports cited by The Independent, ISIS militants possess radioactive material, mostly stolen from government facilities, enough to build a large and devastating dirty bomb – a conventional explosive that is meant to disperse radioactive material over a large area.

Expanding sea ice threatening the viability of Australia’s Mawson Antarctic research station, warns Rob Wooding, general manager of the Australian Antarctic Division’s Operations Branch.
12 May 2015 – Satellite observations show a new daily record being set for Antarctic sea ice every day for the past two weeks. Annual records have also been broken every year for the past three years.
Resupplying Australia’s Mawson Station — the longest continuously operated outpost in Antarctica — relied on access to a bay, a task increasingly complicated by sea ice blocking the way, said Wooding. Continue reading »
– Australia First to Introduce a Compulsory Tax on Money Itself (Armstrong Economics, April 4, 2015):
The reason I moved the Solution Conference forward was due to the fact that all my sources behind the curtain were screaming from the four corners of the world that the new age of Economic Totalitarianism is upon us all. Australia will be the first to introduce a compulsory tax on savings. This is the ultimate Marxist state for now anyone with spare cash is the enemy of the Conservative Tony Abbott government. What I laid out at the Solution Conference is the ONLY way out of this nightmare. It is time for people to start spreading the word and get behind changing the game plan while we still have a game in play. We have to stop this confiscation of all wealth and the continual borrowing and taxation. This will lead to the total destruction of Western culture for we are plagued by power hungry insane politicians who cannot see past their nose.
The new compulsory control is already provided for in the 2015 Australian budget. So that everyone who has any savings must pay taxes on on their savings. The measure is expected to serve as a global test balloon for Europe and North America will watch the outcome in Australia. If there will be no massive resistance of Australian savers, the rest of the world should expect this outright confiscation very rapidly. Continue reading »

– Meet the latest country with negative interest rates (Sovereign Man, April 16, 2015):
Let’s talk about idiots.
Somewhere out there, some absurdly well-paid banker just placed his investors’ capital in yet another financial instrument which is guaranteed to lose money: Australian government debt.
47 investors participated in the Australian government’s $200 million bond tender; the participants typically bid the amount they’re willing to pay, and the highest bids win the auction.
In this case, and for the first time in Australia, every single one of the 47 bidders offered a price so high that it implies a negative interest rate. Continue reading »
– Australia wants to tax bank deposits. Does anyone think the US won’t? (Sovereign Man, April 1, 2015):
Several months ago, the government of Australia proposed to tax bank deposits up to $250,000 at a rate of 0.05% (5 basis points).
Their idea was for the money to be invested in a rainy day Financial Stabilization Fund to insure against in the unlikely event of a banking crisis… or all-out collapse.
And as of this morning, it looks like the levy might just pass and become law in Australia. All parties support the idea. Which means that Australia might just have a tax on bank deposits starting January 1, 2016.
To be clear, the proposal seems to plan on taxing the banks based on the amount of deposits they’re holding—but it’s pretty obvious this will be passed on to consumers in the form of lower interest rates.
Let’s look at what this means: Continue reading »
– Australia To Start Taxing Bank Deposits (ZeroHedge, March 29, 2015):
Up until now, the world’s descent into the NIRPy twilight of fiat currency was a function of failing monetary policy around the globe as central bank after desperate central bank implemented negative and even more negative (in the case of Denmark some four times rapid succession) rates, hoping to make saving so prohibitive consumers would have no choice but to spend the fruits of their labor, or better yet, take out massive loans which they would never be able to repay. However, nobody said it was only central banks who could be the executioners of the world’s saver class: governments are perfectly capable too. Such as Australia’s.
– America’s European “Allies” Desert Obama, Join China-led Infrastructure Bank (ZeroHedge, March 17, 2015):
It appears the sea of de-dollarization has reached the shores of Europe. With Australia and UK having already moved in the direction of joining the China-led AIIB, The FT reports that France, Germany, and Italy have now all agreed to join the development bank as ‘pivot to Asia’ appears to be Plan B for Europe. As Greg Sheridan previously noted, “the saga of the China Bank is almost a textbook case of the failure of Obama’s foreign policy,” but as The FT concludes, the European decisions represent a significant setback for the Obama administration, which has argued that western countries could have more influence over the workings of the new bank if they stayed together on the outside. As Forbes notes, this leaves Obama with 3 uncomfortable options…
As The FT reports,
France, Germany and Italy have all agreed to follow Britain’s lead and join a China-led international development bank, according to European officials, delivering a blow to US efforts to keep leading western countries out of the new institution. Continue reading »
– “Colossal Defeat” For Obama As Australia Joins China’s Regional Bank (ZeroHedge, March 16, 2015):
Having attacked its “closest ally” UK for “constant accomodation” with China, we suspect President Obama will be greatly displeased at yet another close-ally’s decision to partner up with the Chinese-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). As The Australian reports, “make no mistake,” the decision by Australia’s Abbott government to sign on for negotiations to join China’s regional bank, foreshadowed by Tony Abbott at the weekend, “represents a colossal defeat for the Obama administration’s incompetent, distracted, ham-fisted diplomacy in Asia.”
The decision by the Abbott government to sign on for negotiations to join China’s regional bank, foreshadowed by Tony Abbott at the weekend, represents another defeat for Barack Obama’s diplomacy in Asia. Continue reading »

“Fluoride causes more human cancer, and causes it faster, than any other chemical.”
– Dean Burk, Chief Chemist Emeritus, US National Cancer Institute
– The Great Culling: Our Water Official (Full Documentary):
YouTube Added: Mar 22, 2013
Fluoride makes people docile, infertile and gives them cancer. It also leads to the calcification of the entire body, incl. the pineal gland (which means the end to longevity and to one’s spiritual life) .
With about 70% of the public drinking water being fluoridated in the U.S. it is safe to say that TPTB turned the U.S. into one big concentration camp. This is genocide!
I’ve extensively covered the damage that is caused by vaccines. Here is an example:
If you don’t know anything about this yet, you can explore more about vaccines here:

– Militant Australian vaccine and fluoride fanatics seek to eliminate all forms of free speech (Natural News, March 11, 2015):
Perhaps the only country in the world more committed than the U.S. and England to poisoning its own citizens with deadly chemicals in the name of “public health” is Australia, where bitter establishment fogies are angrily resisting all forms of free speech that question or object to the longstanding status quo.
Fluoride truth-teller Professor Paul Connett, who recently held a forum on water fluoridation in Australia, was reportedly snubbed by every single government official he invited to the event to present their opinion on the controversial practice, which by definition amounts to nothing less than forced mass medication with a dangerous pharmaceutical drug.

– Aussie Boom Towns Go Bust As Iron Ore Prices Crash To Record Lows (ZeroHedge, March 6, 2015):
Dalian Iron Ore prices have been cut in half in the last year (which must mean over-supply and not under-demand, right?). Amid China’s growth target cut, Iron Ore prices there have crashed to below $60 – a record low – and that is having dramatic impacts across many regions. As we recently noted, Aussie gold miners are producing desperately to generate cashflow, but despite the booming housing market in some areas, as Reuters reports,the drop in iron ore and coal prices (the nation’s 2 biggest exports) have led former boom towns to bust as “reality comes into the marketplace.”
As bad as it’s ever been… one-third of 2011 peak credit-enthused levels…
– Why is Australia’s vaccine mafia desperately trying to silence this brilliant scientific researcher? (Natural News, Jan 13, 2015):
Australia’s vaccine zealots are the most rabid extremist wing of the vaccine medical mafia, and they’ve engaged in tactics like issuing death threats to vaccine educators to try to silence them. Now, they’re trying to get the Australian government to ban the travel visa of Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, a pro-informed-consent educator who has conducted more research into vaccine adverse effects and safety risks than almost anyone else speaking out today.
Here’s the shocking interview about the Australian travel blockade of Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, broadcast on the Next News Network with Gary Franchi:
Australia’s vaccine mafia, it turns out, is absolutely terrified that citizens of Australia might learn the truth about vaccine exemptions, toxic vaccine ingredients (like mercury) and the growing global epidemic of vaccine-damaged children. Continue reading »
